i have a parking ticket curse!!


TRIBE Member
so, near the begining of january i hit a curb and got a flat tire....my best friend's house was right up the street and she said it would fine if i parked in the driveway next to hers because no one lived in that house...
i ended up getting a parking ticket and my friend took it and said she'd pay it because she told me to park there...
anyhow, about a week ago she still didn't pay it so i went over to get it so i could pay it....
i put money in the meter and went upstairs to get the ticket and write a check...
apon returning to my car a found another ticket!! the time on the meter ran out at 4:18, the ticket was for 4:19 and i was at my car by 4:21....
fine, whatever, i'll pay it with this one....
so, i parked outside city hall and paying those two tickets took a little longer than i expected and i returned to my car to find yet another ticket!!
so, at this point i was soo pissed off and went to a friend's house....
i parked at my regular spot on the street....went inside and my friends gave me a couple drinks to calm down which forced me to wait till i was okay to drive....
now, i guess you're not allowed to park there between 2:30am and 6:00am or something, which i was completely unaware of....
i left my friend's at 3:00am added my new ticket to my collection and went home...
got home and my brother's car was parked farther down than usual in the driveway so i parked behind him leaving my car slightly on the sidewalk and woke up to find another ticket...
so, that's basically 5 tickets in 24 hours....
i'm starting to think that they just follow me around and wait till i leave so they can nail me....
i think i'm gonna start walking everywhere cuz i don't wanna be spending entire pay checks on parking tickets...
anyways, that's it, just had to bitch to someone....

I've paid over $800 in parking tickets in the past 3 years. I should've paid over $2000 but got them reduced. Totally sucks, but I guess its my own fault.

*c* <--- parks alot more carefully now.


As of today, I've got about $240 in parking tickets in the past 3 weeks, on top of about $200 in unpaid ones I already had.

then there's the $800+ I got from york university whiue I wass going there.

where my old station was in downtown Toronto, I used to park on the street all the time and get tickets. In the year that we were at that location, I think I paid more than $700.00 in parking tickets. But I had a reason. I figured, why pay $15-20 to park and have to walk at least 3-4, maybe even 5 blocks, when I can pay a $10-$15 dollar ticket and park right outside the building.

Makes no sense but I was lazy and did not want to walk.

and that's my story.

never got towed either........

I am the queen of parking tickets, I always seem to get them, I have probably paid over $100 in the last six weeks and I don't even own my own car - how shit is that?

Parking Tickets

And just think ... the City of Toronto is STILL short on money every year despite all of this! :)
